Is it really worth it?

So tomorrow my babies will be a whopping 10 weeks old.  They are getting so big.  At their doctor appointment last week (at 9 weeks and 2 days), U was up to 10 lbs 3 oz. He has almost doubled his birth weight of 5 lbs 5 oz.  O is a big boy.  He is 11 lbs 10 oz, up from his birth weight of 6 lbs 15 oz.   The newborn clothes that they were swimming in just 10 weeks ago are getting to be too small.  (Sigh…) 

And tomorrow is also the day that I return to work.  Still trying to decide if it is worth it.  Emotionally and psychologically there is no question that it is totally NOT worth it. Financially, well, let’s just say that we are going to have to find some extra cash in the budget  to cover daycare for 3 kids.  But, we did the math, and it would take even more for me to stay home.  So for now, I will return to work.  (Double sigh….)

I think the biggest challenge will be getting everyone up and out the door in the morning.  Big-E is very used to waiting to the last minute to get his shower/bath, get dressed, and head out the door.  I am going to need him to be ready to help get the kiddos fed, dressed, into car seats and into the car — which means him being ready earlier than he is used to, even earlier than he has been getting out of bed lately.  This should be fun.   Wish us luck!
